At-Home COVID-19 Testing
Wisconsin residents can order a collection kit online and have it shipped to their home at no cost. The kit will include detailed instructions on how to collect the saliva, which includes a video call with a testing supervisor through Vault Medical Services, and ship it back via UPS dropbox to the lab for processing. This is a saliva test and is similar to a nasal swab test you might receive at a community testing site.
Walgreen's COVID-19 Testing

University of Wisconsin La Crosse Testing - Antigen Tests
There is NO testing at UWL the week of 1/25.
*Important note: At this time, the La Crosse County Health Department is encouraging community members to be tested at National Guard Testing Sites or our local Health Systems. These locations provide testing that is most accurate. If you utilize the UWL testing location and this test (antigen) is positive, you will need to complete an additional test (PCR) to confirm that you have COVID-19.
Free testing for COVID-19 is now available to anyone in the La Crosse area at Cartwright Center on the UW-La Crosse campus. The University of Wisconsin System, in partnership with the federal government, is offering this new testing option to help identify silent spreaders of COVID-19 in the community.
This BinaxNOW Testing Program will test up to 500 people each day - even those who are showing no symptoms. Anyone age five or older can be tested, but registration is required.
